ARCHIVED: In Emacs, how do I use commands bound to C-s and C-q (or any key) if these keys are filtered out?

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.

To bind C-s and C-q, use either enable-flow-control or enable-flow-control-on. For usage and implementation details, see ARCHIVED: In Emacs, how do I handle C-s and C-q being used for flow control?

To bind other keys, use keyboard-translate. For usage and details, see ARCHIVED: In Emacs, how do I swap two keys? To do this for an entire site, you should swap the keys in lisp/site-start.el.

Note: If you swap the keys for an entire site, the users will be confused by the disparity between what the documentation says and how Emacs actually behaves.

This information comes from the Emacs FAQ.
